Only one way

It is quite a pleasant climb considering there are some pretty shitty looking 2-tracks straight up the gut.

A beautiful string of single track that winds its way up, catching all the different soil and terrain the area has.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

Couple of downed trees after the windstorm, should be all cleared but keep your head up when defending the other trails!

 ok so once again we need to straighten out some trail names. The gruel refers to the old climb up the two track 4by4 road. The climb you have named the gruel is actually to be called the Holy Pail as a nod to the old and now defunct trail that is now part of dear santa. The Builders of this beauty climb do not think of it as a gruel and worked very hard over 15 years of different alignments to get it to where it is now. So no more gruel please.

 If you are looking for a trail in smith creek called The gruel it does not exist. the trail marked here is signed and named The Holy Pail.
